5 Cars Ideal For Camping Trips*

*This is a collaborative post*

There is so much to enjoy about camping, from the chance to breath in the fresh air to the opportunity to spend precious time with family and explore the outdoors. The pursuit also allows you to get closer to nature, with a night spent gazing at the stars in an inky blue night sky sure to prove more memorable than staying in a hotel.
Here, Lookers has analysed five of the best cars for a camping trip. Each vehicle featured can double up as a place to sleep for the night too…

Ford Galaxy

You’ll be hard pressed to find a more practical car than the Ford Galaxy. If your family extends beyond the average 2.4 children, or if you just prefer more space, then you need a car that not only has enough room to seat everyone but also has enough room for the tent, bags and multiple essentials – a bit of a tall order. Step forward the seven-seater Galaxy – it could be just what you are looking for. This exceptional people carrier has flexible seating with the Easyfold system meaning that you can effortlessly fold each second-row seat flat at the touch of a button. Powerfold also makes loading heavy items a little less time consuming with its automatic third row lowering and raising setting. ​

Nissan X-Trail

The Nissan X-Trail is the perfect choice when you are looking to try out your survival skills in the wilderness and want an ideal travelling companion for the experience. Load up the bikes, kayak and even the family dog. The five rearmost of the Nissan X-Trail’s seven seats can fold flat into the floor when not in use, making it perfect for throwing an air mattress in the back for a night’s sleep. Once day breaks and you want to get on the road again, you can do so in a smooth-riding, well-built, economical SUV. A win-win for everyone.

Range Rover

If you plan to head off-road during your camping trip, opt for the Range Rover. Adjustable air suspension allows even the most luxurious Land Rover to clear above rocks which might otherwise damage the underside of the car, while a wading depth of 90cm should make the occasional river crossing stress-free. Go for the 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6 engine which boasts the torque to scale the most intimidating of inclines.

Volkswagen Touareg

Both the journey and the destination are important aspects of a camping trip. For that purpose, the Volkswagen Touareg is one of the best 4X4s for staycationing. With those Volkswagen credentials it’s reliable of course – important on those coast to coast overnight journeys – and luxurious too. It has an impressive engine and permanent four-wheel drive so it won’t let you down when you’re parking on ground that’s less than terra firma.

Volvo V90

Volvo has long been known for manufacturing vehicles which are perfectly suited to exploring the outdoors. The new Volvo V90 continues this long-standing tradition in some style. Featuring cutting-edge tech such as Large Animal Detection and Run-off Road Mitigation, the V90 is built for these environments. The handy collapsible back row with two stage child safety seats, offers peace of mind when travelling long distances with younger children. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Volvo without a cavernous boot. Perfect for loading up on those trip essentials. Just don’t forget to pack the sleeping bags!

Hopefully one of the vehicles detailed above will stand out to you as being ideal for your camping trips. If you’re still on the fence though, don’t forget that you can test drive any of the cars covered in this guide at your local Lookers dealership.
